Posted by Freddy Wills on March 25th, 2010 - 10:25:00AM.
There is no wrong or right way to bet on college basketball. Strategies and results vary year by year. There are many teams you can bet on throughout the year in Division 1 basketball. You can find a full list of these teams and their team pages by clicking on our link college basketball teams.
The Big Games
Basketball fans love to bet on the big team names like Duke, Uconn, North Carolina, and others. However, you’ll notice successful handicappers that will give out top plays from lower match ups. The reason for that is that the odds maker’s lines are extremely sharp in these games because they know that the majority of the bets will come in on these games. There is a lot of value all over the board especially on a Saturday where that can be upwards of 100 games with odds to bet on.
Sometimes you may not recognize the schools or conferences, but that is the reason we have given you a full list of college basketball teams. Studying a team’s schedule is another key factor in handicapping a college basketball team. There are many small conference schools that try to schedule challenging non-conference games to get their name out there and many times they’ll go on a losing streak only to open up their conference schedule on fire... continue reading how to bet college basketball.

I have said this many times and had to learn it the hard way for myself! Money management is the key to making money and is just as important as how much you know about sports. The key is finding an approach that fits your goals as a sports bettor. Managing your bankroll will absolutely determine how you play and how much you play as well as how long and how much profit you will earn. In the end whatever we suggest is entirely up to you.
There are two thoughts or theories on proper money management. Many in the industry refer to a flat betting theory. Flat betting is essentially betting the same exact amount regardless of who is playing. The other theory involves a scale which we truly believe in here at Sports Bet Capping. Our scale is a 1-5 unit scale where we release the majority of our plays around 3-4 units and 5 unit releases are considered the cream of the crop, game of the month or year. The reason we believe in the scaling is that our handicappers have been very successful in ranking their plays. For myself I always hit close to or over 60% on my play of the days which generally are 4-unit releases.

Baseball Run Lines Tip
Posted by Freddy Wills on June 11th, 2009 - 10:33:20PM.
How do you know when and when not to bet on the run line? Betting on the run line can be extremely rewarding if you do it the right way. The majority of the games are decided by more than 1 game so I personally never ever play the dog on the run line. I also usually play the run line as a bonus play of a money line play. Unless the juice is so outrageous on the money line of course. I'm going to give you a quick run down of the strategies and statistics that must be met before I consider a run line a play.
There are several factors that must be in play if the match up does not meet these I will usually not play the run line.
[list=][*]Play only where the two teams playing have been involved in games decided by more than 1 run 70%+ of the time!
Play on a team who has a 72.5%+ margin of winning games by more than one run @ home or away depending on the situation.[/list]
Example say I want to bet on the Yankees at home vs. the Red Sox. In order for this game to be a play the run line the match up has to meet both conditions set above.
#1 Yankees & Red Sox must play in games that are decided by more than 1 run 70% or more of the time.
#2 Yankees are the home team so they must be winning games by more than 1 run 72.5%+ of the time at home.
#3 Red Sox are the road team they must be losing games by more than 1 run 72.5%+ of the time.
If those conditions are meant then you can play the run line on the Yankees. Now note you actually have to have a good feeling that the Yankees will win of course. Like I said earlier I like to play this angle when I'm betting on the money line and I use the run line as a bonus, because it usually is at +juice and we get a lot of value out of that.
